The present work is concerned by modal identification of time-varying systems. For this purpose, a method based on instantaneous frequency identification and synchronous demodulation is used to extract modal components from recorded signals. The proposed method of iterated sifting process is based on the Hilbert Vibration Decomposition (HVD) technique which is used to extract the instantaneous dominant vibrating component at each iteration. A source separation preprocessing step is introduced to treat multiple degree-of-freedom systems in an optimal way. Sources are used as reference signals to get a single instantaneous frequency of each mode for the demodulation on all the channels. The algorithm is presented and is applied to numerical simulation of a randomly excited time-varying structure for illustration purpose. The investigated structure is made up of a beam on which a non-negligible mass is traveling. The variable location of the mass results in changes in modal parameters. [less ▲]

This paper concerns damage identification of a bridge located in Luxembourg. Vibration responses were captured from measurable and adjustable harmonic swept sine excitation and hammer impact. Different analysis methods were applied to the data measured from the structure showing interesting results. However, some difficulties arise, especially due to environmental influences (temperature and soil-behaviour variations) which overlay the structural changes caused by damage. These environmental effects are investigated in detail in this work. First, the modal parameters are identified from the response data. In the next step, they are statistically collected and processed through Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Kernel PCA. Damage indexes are based on outlier analysis. [less ▲]

This paper discusses a newly developed three-parameter kinematic theory (3PKT) for shear critical walls with the help of four wall tests. The 3PKT is used to predict the pre- and post- peak response of the test units. Comparisons are performed with finite element (FE) models and plastic hinge models in combination with a shear degradation model. It is found that the latter underestimate the displacement capacity of the walls while the former do not predict well the post-peak response. The 3PKT with only three degrees of freedom captures the complete response of the walls provided that the size of the critical loading zone (CLZ) of the wall is well predicted. [less ▲]

This analysis shows that the current rainfall deficit is exceptional and historically unique. The significant population migration induced by the drought to Djibouti city must be supervised, especially during their spontaneous settling. This presented example confirms that current rainfall shortages and increasing temperature extremes are impactinglocal people who urgently need adaptation and DRR strategies. It is necessary to reduce exposure to hydrological risks of these affected populations, in order that victims of the drought are not carried away by a rainfall excess. [less ▲]

A poly(ionic liquid)-based block copolymer (PIL BCP), namely, poly(vinyl acetate)-b-poly(N-vinyl-3-butylimidazolium bromide), PVAc-b-PVBuImBr, is synthesized by sequential cobalt-mediated radical polymerization (CMRP). A PVAc precursor is first prepared at 30 °C in bulk by CMRP of VAc, using bis(acetylacetonato)cobalt(II), Co(acac)2, and a radical source (V-70). Growth of PVBuImBr from PVAc-Co(acac)2 is accomplished by CMRP in DMF/MeOH (2:1, v/v). This PIL BCP self-assembles in the sub-micron size range into aggregated core–shell micelles in THF, whereas polymeric vesicles are observed in water, as evidenced by dynamic light scattering (DLS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Thin-solid sample cut from raw materials analyzed by TEM shows an ordered lamellar organization by temperature-dependent synchrotron small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). Anion exchange can be accomplished to achieve the corresponding PIL BCP with bis(trifluorosulfonyl)imide (Tf2N−) anions, which also gives rise to an ordered lamellar phase in bulk samples. A complete suppression of SAXS second-order reflection suggests that this compound has a symmetric volume fraction (f ≈ 0.5). SAXS characterization of both di- and triblock PIL BCP analogues previously reported also shows a lamellar phase of very similar behavior, with only an increase of the period by about 8% at 60 °C.

Les pouvoirs locaux sont soumis, comme tous les autres niveaux de pouvoir, à de profonds mouvements de « managérialisation », dont la récente transformation des titres de secrétaire communal et de receveur communal en directeur général et directeur financier sont des illustrations emblématiques. Les pouvoirs communaux sont désormais invités à rédiger des « programmes stratégiques transversaux » (PST) et à se doter de divers outils de gestion en vue d’améliorer le service aux citoyens dans un cadre budgétaire restreint. Le présent article propose une réflexion sur la capacité de ces nouveaux outils à façonner l’action publique au niveau du management intermédiaire… [less ▲]

This paper presents a modeling of thin sheets. An interface condition based on analytical solution is used to avoid a fine mesh. This condition is integrated in a time domain Discontinuous Galerkin method in order to evaluate the shielding effectiveness. This approach is validated by a comparison with analytical solution. 2D and 3D cavities are simulated to illustrate the efficiency of the condition. [less ▲]
